It had bee a few days since I had taken the opportunity to walk the campus of SIUC.
I was amazed at the Spring transformation that had occurred!
The renewal and rebirth of life is, continually, something to behold!
I was reading some wonderful writings from my, lifelong friend, Jeff..and I was transported back to the days that he and I were teenagers…with our life before us!
I marveled at how rapidly the past 45+ years have gone by.
We humans see history from our limited time on the planet. What seems long to us is no more than a passing shadow to the universe…and a cool breeze to God!
We took Mr. Wallace back to the Veterinarian today! He had eight teeth removed two weeks ago tomorrow!
Wallace is setting on him mommies lap. Wallace loves him mommy!After Wallace’s, multiple, tooth extraction…he was able to indulge in special, soft, food!
He seemed to warm-up to his new diet…quickly!
All of us want to leave our mark!
We hope to be, fondly, remembered…once we leave this mortal life!
I think that there is no more certain assurance that we will be remembered than to help our fellow human beings who travel on the road of life with us!
As I think of my, United Kingdom friend, Jeff Lestz, and all that he has done to assist and make easier the lives of his; friends and colleagues and strangers that he meets…I am proud that I have known him, from early in his journey!
Each of us are born into circumstances that we neither asked for or chose. A happy and successful life it the navigating of those circumstances in order to produce a satisfying existence.
Spring reminds me that life is continuous! What seems to wither and die, in the fall and winter…comes back in all of its glory in the spring!
What a, magical, mystical, mystery, life is!
Have you ever experienced Deja vu? Perhaps there is a reason?
Wallace knows when someone is good to him…and he appreciates the love…and the perks!
SIUC is not on the down hill of its history or the diminishment of its outreach!
Oh no! Southern Illinois University is poised to experience a renaissance!
It is spring…and life has been renewed!
